Volkswagen has completed its inaugural entry in the Rebelle Rally, with Driver Mercedes Lilienthal and Navigator Emily Winslow running the modified Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV through eight grueling days of off-road competition in the deserts of Nevada and California, U.S.A.

Lilienthal and Winslow competed in the ID.4 in the X-Cross category. Tanner Foust Racing and Rhys Millen Racing modified the vehicle with new suspension components, tubular control arms, fabricated skid plates, battery protection and other items to fully equip the vehicle for the driving expedition.

"As the vehicle driver, the Volkswagen ID.4 surpassed my expectations when it came to its off-pavement performance. The all-wheel-drive ID.4's driving dynamics, tight steering, and easy maneuverability made this SUV a pleasure to pilot," said Mercedes Lilienthal.

With two electric motors on each axle, the production version of the ID.4 AWD offers instant torque and several drive modes to handle a variety of surfaces. Combined, the system produces 291bhp and 460Nm of torque, with a range of 400km in the ID.4 AWD Pro trim.
